Graduating seniors lost many experiences due to the coronavirus pandemic this year — canceled sports season, no prom, and most likely a virtual graduation ceremony and celebration. Gifting is a way to help brighten up their day and make them feel special and cared for.

Adorama Deal of The Day

Have a techy grad? Check out Adorama for a great selection of tech gifts, ranging from computers, video/audio gadgets, photography gears, home electronics, musical instruments, drones and sports-related products. A little shopping tip from me: their Deal of the Day page is fantastic! Check that out first when you are ready to shop for a gift for your grad.

Amazon Gift Card

Not sure what they like? A gift card might be the best way to go. An Amazon gift card is great for any occasion, including graduation. It can be emailed, printed at home, and mailed, comes in so many different designs, and they don't expire!
